The Little Sugar Creek Greenway, part of the Carolina Thread Trail, runs along eastern Charlotte and will one day stretch more than 15 miles down to the Catawba River in neighboring South Carolina. As of 2012, the trail offers four completed sections:
- Cordelia Park to 12th Street (0.95 miles)
- E. 7th Street to Morehead Street (1.29 miles)
- Morehead Street to Brandywine Road (2.88 miles)
- Huntingtowne Farms Park (0.79 miles)
The trail is a beautiful urban gem, connecting several parks, schools, recreational facilities, shopping and dining areas, gardens, and public art pieces.
Parking locations for each section of the trail can be found on the Mecklenburg County
